The great Catholic monarchs Ferdinand and Isabel founded the Monasterio de San Jerónimo in the 16th century. They tried situating it in Santa Fe, but the monks were so tortured by mosquitoes that they had to move them to the present site.
Built by Diego de Siloé, this monastery is hardly austere: it’s a heavily ornamented riot of gilding, carving and celestially-hued painting.
